We're in the third week of school and this year I have a first grader! Like, how did that happen? Charlie is also doing fall soccer and scouts this year!
Not only that, but Owen is doing 3-day preschool this year! While we absolutely love his school (it's at our church), it's a little over 20 minutes each way and that adds up and makes me feel run-down if I'm doing all that driving. My plan for the year is do the Women's Bible Study group one day, work at church one day in the cafe, and come home or run errands one day. No matter what I do though, it's going to be busier this year than last.
I'm a sucker for quick and easy meals. I absolutely love cooking, but sometimes it's just about getting dinner on the table. Even though things are about to get crazy with Back-to-School just around the corner, sitting down together at dinner each night is still super important. That's our time to connect and settle down for a moment.
By now, you should all know my love for Smithfield Pork. With Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork, the prep work is done – so you’ve got a no-hassle, flavor-filled answer everyone is going to love. I purchased some Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork at Kroger to help stock up for those busy school nights ahead!
For our Tortilla-Crusted Pork, I decided to use the Smithfield Slow Smoked Mesquite Flavor Fresh Pork Loin Filet. Of course, I think any flavor variety would work for this, so grab your favorite on your next Kroger trip! I love that I get real flavor, real fast with Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork and get dinner on the table in about 30 minutes.
